Chris Carpenter writes “When Louise & I established the Fairfield herd of Pedigree Guernseys in 2011, we were lucky enough to purchase two of the best guernsey cows in the UK at the time.
Trevider Hercules Linnette would go on and classify EX93 with a show career culminating in her winning Guernsey Champion at the South West Dairy Event in 2014. She is the Dam of Chieftain and Granddam of Atlanta and Atlantis.
Fairfield Bonnie classified EX92 and was Devon Champion in 2017. She is the Dam of Navajo Warrior, the sire of all 3 bulls, Warrior was the highest PTA for milk bull in the world when he was registered in 2016 and his daughters are just starting their first lactation at Bickfield.
Who ever purchases these bulls they can be assured of fantastic potential for type & production.”
